Administrative history

Guiding began in Cumberland County in 1925 when a Company was formed at Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. The company operated off and on for several years. A company was formed in Springhill in 1929 and the movement spread to Amherst in 1931. From there it spread to Oxford, and throughout the county. Early in the 1930s pack and companies in Cumberland County had been joined to form Cumberland Division. In 1934 the Division held its first camp at Black Rock. Guiding has since spread throughout what is now referred to as Cumberland Area (encompassing Cumberland County) and consists of Amherst, Oxford, Parrsboro, Pugwash/Wallace, River Hebert and Springhill Districts.
